England and Wales take on Slovakia and Russia respectively tonight, as they seek to qualify in the best possible places for the knock-out rounds.
Get into the excitement of tonight’s match by listening to some classic England World Cup songs, which have got me raring for the coming encounter.
The Dragons come into tonight’s match needing to avoid defeat in order to seal a place in the top three, which is highly likely to be enough to seal a place in the next round, with four of the remaining five groups third-placed sides unlikely to all finish with a better points and goal difference. ...........Read more

Arsenal may have been left disappointed by the news that it is increasingly unlikely that the club will sign Leicester and England international striker Jamie Vardy, but the transfer rumours for potential incoming targets are still in full swing.
The Daily Mirror is today reporting that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering a move for Manchester United’s Daley Blind. It is reported that new United manager Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger’s enemy is football, is unsure on whether he has room for Blind in his plans for next season. Mourinho could therefore be willing to sell the player and media reports today suggest that Wenger is not afraid to contact Mourinho over a potential move for the Dutchman. ...........Read more
There has been a growing sense coming from the football media that Arsenal would not get their man, and the fact that the Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy did not accept the offer to move to Arsenal before heading off to Euro 2016 with Roy Hodgson and the England squad was always a worry. He would have been perfect for Arsenal, especially as at that price Wenger would not need to win multiple jackpots at the online casinos at Automatenherz.com to pay for him! And no Automatenherz is not the new German centre back we are looking for as a partner to Laurent Koscielny, although I wonder if we are still looking for a player in that area of the pitch.” ...........Read more

There have been a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours in recent weeks that have suggested firstly that the Borussia Dortmund and Armenia star Henrikh Mkhitaryan was a target for Arsene Wenger and then that the player wanted to join us and was set for a move to north London in this summer transfer window. The Gunners werequickly installed as favourites to sign him in the Online Soccer Betting.
There were also reports that he might go to our Premier League rivals Manchester United instead, and the only good thing about the latest development on the Mkhitaryan situation is that he will not be joining up with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford. ...........Read more

With Arsenal having already triggered the transfer release clause of the England international striker Jamie Vardy, and with Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Arsene Wenger is keen on his Leicester City team mates Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante as well, the Foxes are in danger of being ripped apart by the Gunners.
After their brilliant but surprising Premier League title win, however, we are not the only club looking at their players by any means. One of those clubs is Manchester United and according to a Metro report their new manager Jose Mourinho also wants Kante. ...........Read more
It may still be unconfirmed officially, but most reports would suggest that Jamie Vardy is not going to be signing for the Gunners this summer. It seems that the English international would rather remain at Leicester, where he achieved the unthinkable last season, breaking both team and personal achievements and records. If such rejection is the case, then Arsenal need to start looking elsewhere again for another striker. ...........Read more

Wenger on France’s radar?
Since the end of the season Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, has been quite coy on the speculation surrounding his future at the club. Although many fans had wanted Le Prof out of Arsenal last season, it seems the majority have again warmed to him since the signing of Granit Xhaka.
When speculation surrounding his future was at it’s highest point, Wenger did comment to say that he isn’t sure of how much longer his managerial association with Arsenal will last, with as early as the end of next season being a possibly departure date for the Frenchman. With his contract up at the end of next season and there yet to be any committal to a new deal, it starts to spread rumours that next year could be his last. ...........Read more
